The end of the year is shaping up to be an exciting time for Fortnite fans, because Chapter 3 was released just over a week ago. With the launch of the new chapter, many new cosmetics have been made, as well as many changes to the map. While this update appears to be keeping things cool for gamers for a long time, Epic Games shows no signs of slowing down. Recently he added a new event for Fortnite just in time for the holiday season.

In a blog post, Epic Games announced that Winterfest started in Fortnite. As the name suggests, the event features a winter theme full of holiday content. The event began on Thursday, December 16 at 9 a.m. EST and will run through Thursday, January 6 at 9 a.m. EST. There seem to be plenty of reasons fans are excited about the festivities.

One of the highlights of the event is the introduction of several new Spider-Man skins. Available in the Item Shop, players can get the Spider-Man costume featured in the movie Spider-Man: No Path Home. One of the highlights of this outfit is that it includes a removable mask, which means players can see a recreation of Tom Holland’s face. This mask can be put on and off using a built-in emote. Fans can also purchase the MJ skin on No way home. Additionally, there are a few other outfits featuring the Marvel hero that are slated to drop into the Item Shop during the Winter Event.


Those Spider Man Outfits aren’t the only new cosmetics coming to Winterfest 2021. During the event, players can get Blizzabelle from the Item Shop. In addition, several new skins are arriving as gifts via the Winterfest Lodge. These new outfits include Krisabelle and Polar Peely. The first outfit is based on the community-inspired character Isabelle, while the second skin imagines what a frozen banana might look like. Players can unlock Krisabelle after unwrapping 6 gifts, and Polar Peely becomes available after thawing. Additionally, players can unlock the Snowmando Board Glider and Frosty Back Bling by completing a number of Winterfest quests.


These are just a few of the highlights from the myriad of new content available in the Winterfest update for Fortnite. In addition to these new cosmetics, a number of changes have been made to the gameplay of the event. Some of these modifications include unvaulted snow-themed weapons, such as the Cooler and Snowball Launcher. Additionally, players can once again use the Sneaky Snowman disguise to hide from enemies. Plus, Staff Sgt. Winter wanders the map accompanied by 2 Rangers with red noses. Players can receive gifts from the NPC, but he and his Rangers will attack if provoked.

Fortnite is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S.
